The Medical Director of Connecticut Urgent Care Centers, Dr. Rich Greiner was interviewed live on “The Dr. Jeff Says Show” broadcast by WLIS 1420 AM and WMRD 1150 AM, on April 13, 2015.
As an experienced emergency physician, Dr. Greiner’s vision involves filling the gap between emergency medical care and primary care by helping individuals and families with their medical needs in a high quality and affordable way. This affordable way is taking shape as he and the skilled medical staff at Connecticut Urgent Care Centers deliver top quality care to the communities of Cromwell, Middletown, and Berlin, Connecticut.
In the interview, Dr. Greiner expresses, “The need for [urgent care centers] is that now patients are more involved in their own healthcare expenses. So they might have a higher deductible insurance plan, they’re paying more out of pocket, and they realize that if they’re going to be spending that kind of money, they want to be more involved in their own decisions, and maybe they want to spend less money. So we’re just kind of a gap-filler, and there is definitely a need for filling that gap between the primary care doctor and the emergency room… and we’re more affordable… and it’s unreasonable to expect that primary doctors are going to have open office hours that are convenient to everybody.”
